Branches on the old nest tree are always a popular place to perch, and sometimes eat. The nestcam is often recording just the movement of the twigs on an empty Nest 2.
Since fledging on Wednesday, Bamburgh has made plenty of flights to hone her skills.

In the next video, Bamburgh flies over EB on a favourite tree. EB then flies behind Bamburgh.
Like the other fledglings, Bamburgh is capable of consuming 37’s offerings without assistance.
EB has caught fish in previous years once her offspring have fledged – the only female breeding at Kielder that we have seen do this. This year, she hasn’t brought a fish in. But with 37’s rate of supply and just one fledgling to provision, there has been no need.
As the rain came down this morning, she stood with Bamburgh in the nest for a while, then both birds decided to seek a more sheltered spot.
After the morning rain came strong blustery winds and sun. On Nest 1A, Binky hadn’t fledged by 18.30, a relief for human observers given the winds. There is likely to be heavy rain tomorrow morning into the afternoon, so she may have to wait a while.
